How efficient is the Greenstar 24i?
Greenstar i system boilers are highly efficient heating systems as shown by the 94% efficiency and ErP A-rating. As a result, you could see your heating bills drop rather considerably.
Is the output rating suitable for my home?
A central heating output of 24 kW is ideal for any properties with around 15 radiators. Then the cylinder allows it to meet demands of 2 or more bathrooms.
Are any other options available in the range?
If the 24 kW output of this boiler is suited to the heating demands of your home then there are lower outputs of 9 kW to 21 kW and higher outputs of 27 kW and 30 kW. A Gas Safe registered engineer will be able to recommend the most suitable output for your home.
Is a system boiler suitable for my home?
System boilers are installed alongside a hot water cylinder which allows them to meet higher demands for hot water in properties with 2 or more bathrooms. So for a system boiler to be suitable for your home then you'll need more space than a combi boiler would need.
How long is the warranty period?
An extensive warranty period of up to 7 years is available when installed by a Worcester accredited installer.
What are the key features of the Greenstar 24i?
Key features of the Greenstar 24 i include simple boiler controls, a wide choice of heating controls, a low energy pump and full compatibility with Greenskies solar panels. Plus it's been recommended by the Energy Saving Trust.
How big is the Greenstar 24i?
Designed for wall-mounted installation this is a compact unit which can be installed within a cupboard thanks to dimensions of 710 x 400 x 330 (HxWxD).
They need to simplify the boiler with more thought towards the fitter and the installation process. Access to screws and internal fittings was difficult especially when removing the condense trap. I installed one recently and hoped that they might of addressed those issues, but hey presto, they haven't!
I have recently had this boiler installed alongside a Joule unvented cylinder controlled by a Nest thermostat. It's a quiet efficient boiler that's providing more than enough hot water and heating for a family of 5 in a 5 bed detached house. Our previous Potterton boiler struggled to heat the house so good choice to change to the 24i.
Whilst the Greenstar 24i uses less gas, I am not able to raise the temperature in our house beyond 21c and that temperature is only achieved by having all radiators at maximum setting, all doors closed in lounge and the heating system on all day...even then it only achieves 21c in the evening.
I live in a semi detacced, bungalow where all external walls have had cavity insulation and where all windows are double glazed. The irony is that I was warmer before the new boiler was fitted 2 years ago.
